Switching Again

I am switching houses again
switching lives
its time to re-re-readjust
to find my dented shape in the mattress
and count the cracks in the ceiling
and find where I carved my name
into the bottom of the wooden dresser
time to unfold clothes
my
-other-
clothes
and return to my family
my
-other-
family
time to remember the other route to school
and to kiss goodbye
my other mother
time to return to my treasures
my other treasures
and hug my other pillow
to sleep at night
its that time again
but soon
I will re-re-re-return
again
to my
-other-
other
family
once more

I like how you used the "re-re-re" thing (I don't know what to call it) before all the things you're doing to show how you have done it over and over again. I can't personally relate, but I like how I can somewhat understand what you mean (if you know what I mean).
